Amazon plugin for comics?

Hey all, just discovered gcstar today!
I'm looking forward to using it for my myriad of collections. smile

My question is this...
I need to lookup US comics via amazon or some other database, but there doesn't seem to be an option to
use any different plugins for it in the comics template.

I am searching by UPC, as my Opticon UPC scanner worked without needing drivers. smile


My system: Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon
Opticon OPT-6125

Thanks!

Re: Amazon plugin for comics?

Hello,

As Amazon doesn't seem to publish specific info for comics (series, illustrator, etc...), you should first try the book plugins that support ISBN codes.

If you find that some items are incomplete or that some information could be used in a dedicated comics plugin, let me know.

@kerenoc
Metron offers a Python-based API for comic book lookup.
Sadly, I'm not a programmer, so I wouldn't know how to turn it into a plug-in

Code:

metron.cloud
